Be Fair Be Vegan campaign receives huge boost

Joaquin Phoenix, after the screening of the film “Joker” at the Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF) and hours before winning the TIFF Tribute award, took time out to lend support to the Be Fair Be Vegan campaign! 

He stopped by St. George subway station in Toronto which has received a Be Fair Be Vegan makeover! Joaquin stood beside the huge animal rights murals which show the animals’ perspective.

The Climate Save Movement is a worldwide network of climate action groups aiming to end animal agriculture and transition to a just and vegan, plant-based food system, reforest the Earth and phase out fossil fuels to address the climate emergency.

Please welcome our new Climate Save chapters from around the world:

Dehradun Climate Save (India). Find them on Facebook.

Please join us for these upcoming actions:

Via OneGreenPlanet: On Friday, September 20th, people all around the world will be marching for the planet. The Global Climate Strike is a worldwide protest inspired by the youth behind School Strikes for Climate. A year ago, Greta Thunberg motivated young people all around the world when she started walking out of school on Fridays to urge the Swedish government to fight climate change.

The purpose of the strike is to urge governments to fight climate change, but there are specific demands that protesters are asking for. Specifically, activists are pressuring governments to transition from fossil fuels to 100 percent renewable energy. Climate Save Movement demands a transition to a vegan world, as animal agriculture is a key driver of the climate chaos. 


September 20 to 27
RSVP: event page
Every day from September 20th to the 27th during The Global Week For Future, we’re asking for bells to be rung daily around the world. The goal is to get churches, synagogues, mosques, schools and community centers – anyone who has bells – to ring them at 12 pm (or just before your strike starts) every day for several minutes.
Template letters to send to religious institutions, schools are listed below. Also, ask for messages to be placed on signboards out front of buildings and flyers for your strikes on their noticeboards. Some institutions are very supportive of social justice issues, particularly environmental and human rights issues.
Letter templates:  to a church, to a secular institution

We need thousands of people to get involved and build this action together. From 7 October, we will take over the streets of London for 12 days in non-violent, civil disobedience to ensure our message is heard. Please book time off work and bring a tent. We need you!
It’s time to act now.



Cargill: don’t let the Amazon burn
October 7, 7:45 AM – 8:45 AM, New York City
RSVP: event page
The Amazon is on fire, and we know who’s to blame. It’s Cargill. A new report by Mighty Earth found that Cargill’s activities are centrally linked to the incineration of the Amazon. 

On October 7, the Wall Street Journal is interviewing Cargill’s Senior Vice President Ruth Kimmelshue at the Intercontinental New York Barclay. We’re showing up because we need to tell the Wall Street Journal the full story.
Five years ago, Cargill pledged to cut ties to deforestation by 2020. This year the company openly admitted they will not be following through on that commitment. We do not have another 5 years. We don’t have another one year. Cargill must act now.

Climate Save groups held a day of action for the Amazon on September 9.

Do you know who’s burning the Amazon?



There is a better way, as even Cargill knows: switch to a 100% plant-based economy. For example, this deal shows the way:

Hyderabad Animal Save bore witness to aquatic animals at a fish market: “We may find it difficult to empathize with fishes and other aquatic animals since they are very different from humans physically, they live beneath the water, and we cannot perceive their vocalizations. However, numerous studies have shown that fishes have the capacity to suffer and feel pleasure, just like mammals, birds, reptiles and other animals. Fishes suffer pain and seek out positive experiences.”

They don’t have the right to it because they are seen as numbers.”
